Below The Surface - Stuff found in the Amsterdam canals

Awesome! I lived on a houseboat for a couple of years (still miss it). I was always happy when boats started dredging when I was home. Mesmerizing. All the stuff they got out of the canals (mainly bicycles). This project 'Below the surface' is about what they have found because of the building of the North-South metro line (which, btw, I'm going to boycot. Shame on Amsterdam, but that's a different story).

Nice website where you can create your own display with the finds. Be an artist, unleash your creative self and try it out. And of course there's a book which I'm not going to buy (see remark in the first alinea, although my curious self wants to, but I will stay strong).



Below a documentary 'Amstel, mirror of the city' by AT5, yes, with english subtitles added.

Am I enough?

Beautiful TED talk by Brené Brown 'The power of vulnerability'. So recognizable. I am asking myself wholeheartedly 'Am I enough'? She's so right, but living up to this is the most difficult thing to do. I can assure you, I'm not, and I'm not the only one.

(Thanks Bianca)

Old news, but I can't stop laughing at first and than feeling very very very sad.

I'm back ...

I hope :)

Busy busy busy. I know, that's not okay. You can make time. Do you want a lame excuse? Too much on my mind. Private and work, too much going on. I told you that's a lame excuse.

And my MacBook Pro all of a sudden disappeared and re-appeared in my daughters room (20 years old, interactive designer). The only laptop I have now is my work laptop, a very small Dell. Easy as hell. I'm a Mac girl (computer only, I'm anti iPhone), I've learned working on a computer on a Mac, by accident. So me and a Dell laptop is quite silly. Can't find anything. But I will teach myself, if only for blogging.

How am I? Thanks for asking, so sweet. Fine, I'm always fine. Or: Life sucks :).
Worked 40hrs+ and a hectic private life. And I'm part now of the TEDxAmsterdam Partner team. As a volunteer, as are all collegues who work for TEDxAmsterdam. So getting busier and busier.

Back to business ... did you see this photo?


Hilarious don't you think? Look at his face!!!!!!
